AWESOME!  6 DEALS in 12 months.

Now everyone will want to know your secret. They won't do it, but they will want to know.

The account I set up, many years ago, was stranded because I forget the password and the LKIN folks won't delete the old account. Feeling more like a 'one-legged' spider, I did not want to be spinning in circles and did not develop any business through LKN.

I use it as a resume, and also share slides, articles, and videos about my business but no direct leads. What are you doing that is resulting in leads do you think?
